Pod farm 2.51 not working without UX1
by Frankup on 2011-11-06 20:58:08.7130

A year ago I purchased a pod UX1 and have been using the free version of pod farm 1 that came with the hardware.

Recently I ordered a new audio interface, and I wanted to be able to use pod farm with my new interface instead of the UX1, so I purchased pod farm 2.5 and the metal shop pack. According to the license manager, my computer is authorized with pod farm 2 and metal shop.

Unfortunately, when I run pod farm without my UX1 connected, it tells me that there was no pod farm 2 license authorized. It lets me use a trial version of pod farm, and doesn't authorize my metal shop pack.

Any help would be great.


I have un-authorized and re-authorized my computer, and the same problem persists.

I also updated all drivers, and no solution.

This might be something to do with dependencies related to your OS. Are you on Vista or Windows 7?


We've found that some users haven't done a crucial series of updates to their Windows OS, particularly for the C++ dependencies. Over time, we've gathered our findings and provided this recommendation to Windows OS users having difficulty getting the computer authorization to open the features that the license should offer:


Please follow the steps in that and see if it doesn't solve the issue. Note: several users have alerted that it might take anywhere from 2-3 restarts and re-checks for Updates with each restart before the problem on their particular system was resolved.

I'm having the same problem, and i'm using a mac book. I can't even use the pod farm plug-in without the UX1 pluged in.

you can only use it with the UX1 plugged in unless you paid extra for the license.

the license belongs to the UX1 if it was included with the purchase.

no UX1=no license.
